The Global Environment Facility (GEF) is a financial mechanism that provides grants and concessional funds to recipient countries for projects and activities to protect the global environment.  The governance structure of the GEF includes an Assembly, a Council, a Secretariat, a Scientific and Technical Advisory Panel and an Independent Evaluation Office (IEO).  Projects financed by the GEF are implemented by eighteen GEF Agencies. The IEO is functionally independent of, but administratively supported by, the World Bank. It is independent from the CEO of the GEF and reports directly to the GEF Council. The GEF Council authorizes IEO’s four-year rolling work plans, approves annual budgets and receives all evaluation reports (

The IEO has the central role of ensuring the independent evaluation function within the GEF; of setting minimum requirements for evaluation; of ensuring oversight of the quality of evaluation systems at program and project level; and of sharing evaluative evidence within the GEF. The IEO has the responsibility for undertaking independent evaluations. These evaluations are typically at the strategic level, on focal areas, or on cross-cutting themes. Institutional evaluations, such as assessing the resource allocation mechanism, or governance, are also undertaken.

The IEO’s work program is designed to help the GEF enhance its impacts and better address the most relevant environmental and related development challenges faced by recipient countries. With the completion of the Seventh Comprehensive Evaluation of the GEF (OPS-7), the IEO has embarked on a new evaluation work program for the eighth replenishment period of the GEF (GEF-8). The ongoing and planned evaluations will feed into the Eighth Comprehensive Evaluation of the GEF (OPS8), to be completed by the fall of 2025, in time for the next replenishment of the GEF. 

During the eighth replenishment period of the GEF (2022-2026), the IEO seeks to deepen the evidence on GEF’s results and performance through ex-post evaluations as well as provide real time feedback on recent shifts in the GEF’s strategy and programming, such as those related to country level strategies and integrated programs. The IEO will also strengthen its work to scale up learning and knowledge sharing, improve evaluation methodology and quality assurance, and enhance cost-effectiveness of evaluations.

IEO is led by the Director of Evaluation, who reports directly to the GEF Council. The Evaluation Analyst will report to the Team Leader/Chief Evaluation Officer under the overall guidance of the IEO Director.
